will reflect the overall writing process, including the paper itself. The paper will be due in finals week. A clear originality report is necessary for your paper to be graded. You are highly encouraged to meet with the instructor throughout the quarter as you conduct your research and write. Late essays will be penalized 10 points (out of 100) per one-hour block (up to 1 hour late = 10 point deduction). Weekly homework You are required to submit a weekly 1-page essay (due by noon each Friday) using the week’s assigned readings as evidence to support an argument of your choosing. You need not use all of the assigned readings, but use whatever is pertinent to “proving” your argument in a paragraph or two. These assignments are to help you to build a supported argument using primary and secondary sources, as required for your paper. Please use Chicago Manual of Style footnotes to cite your sources. One assignment grade will be omitted automatically, so you are only responsible for submitting 9 essays. ParticipationYou are expected to attend classes on time and ready to engage in meaningful discussion of the readings. We will have frequent individual and small-group discussions and exercises in class for which you must have read the assignments carefully. Regular attendance is required. It is up to you alone to submit documentation for legitimate absences and you are responsible for submitting all work on time. POLICIES Email communication and course website I will regularly send emails to the entire class. You are responsible for checking your email daily, and for responding to messages that require your participation. The course website is a 24/7 resource for our class. Cheating and plagiarismYou are required to produce your own work for this course. You are committing plagiarism if you borrow text from a book, article, website or other work by another author without properly citing the source. If you borrow or buy someone else’s work product and pass it off as your own, you are cheating. Neither is permissible under any circumstance. Students who violate either the letter or spirit of University regulations will face disciplinary proceedings and may automatically fail the course. SCHEDULE Readings are listed under the date that they are due. Be sure to bring the readings with you to class in PDF or printed format. Primary sources are noted with an * asterisk.
